You don't have to view it as a sin in a religious way not to want to be a prostitute. Some types of people will, but some types of people are prostitutes and do porn already. The thing is in our type of society there is less likely to be a situation where it is like 'do this work or die', compared to the past.

That is rather lolable. That should be a word

The single most popular adult site in the world is LiveJasmin, a webcam site which gets around 32 million visitors a month, or almost 2.5% of all internet users!

Almost all of the webcam girls are from eastern Europe or southeast Asia. At $8-$15/hour with no benefits, it doesn't pay enough for American women… except teenage girls and college students.

Most of the foreign women do it without the knowledge of their friends and family and only do it for Americans so that acquaintances in their homeland won't hear about it.

Believe me, sex work is the least of our worries in Germany.

Social injustice reigns supreme in our society, with the rich growing fat on the poor man's labour.

Is there anywhere where that's not the case?

Some of the Scandinavian countries have not yet become whores of the new aristocracy, but the remaining retreats dwindle fast before the vast economic power that's continuously undermining democracy around the globe.

That is probably because it pops up every time you visit about 50% of the websites on the net. Want to read a comedy article? Livejasmin. Want to watch a TV programme? Livejasmin. It's very annoying.

What's that you say? Poor people in desperate circumstances are being forced to turn to unsavory options like crime and prostitution?

We need to stop those damn socialists from providing any assistance or support to poor, desperate people!

That wouldn't shock me. There's two websites I frequent, a sci-fi movie website, and a video gaming website (so those frequented by "lonely geeks"), and every freakin' time I make a move off of the main pages, or click on a link I get a pop-up from that site. I bet I've clicked on that pop-up a dozen or so times myself by accident.

By the way, a word of caution: you might not want to advertise for them by putting up the full website. I'm betting it's against the rules here.
